#2602541 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by Jersey Wing on Yesterday, 10:13 PM

Get the first goal in game 7 and they'll be fine. They showed maximum heart in game 5, they can get right back up on top. They didn't play awful tonight but Tampa did what a desperate team has to do. They got to more loose pucks than the Wings but not all. They converted chances better let's say that. Young Mr. Mrazek mist realize that when the Bolts are breaking in on him they are gonna shoot high. They are fixated going high when left open for shots. Clean that up, knock in a PP goal in game 7 and we're groovy.

If Howard started this series, the Wings would have been swept. No reason to even bring it up, but since some people are saying it. Mrazek's puck movement has helped our atrociously undermanned defense with their breakouts. Without it, we spend at least 5 more minutes of each game in our own end. Not to mention Howard was god awful leading up to the playoffs. Mrazek has been a little inconsistent, but to identify him as a weakness (or not a very strong positive) for us is ludicrous.

Aside from the fact that you can't tell the future, I'm not saying that Howard should start game 7, it's too late for that. But Howard at the top of his game (which he was at for most of the year) is better and more consistent overall that Mrazek, who has had two very bad games in this series. He won three games, yes, you're not all knowing so you can't say that Howard would not have also won the games.

 

Completely agreed. That doesn't mean I think Mrazek should be playing over Howard.


What series have you been watching? Mrazek has played better in this series than Jimmy has played in any series. Keep in mind Jimmy also had Lidstrom and raFi for a few seasons as well. Mrazek has been our best player and was not the reason we lost last night at all.

I base that on how he's constantly out of position and can't stop a breakaway, along with losing two games for us. Mrazek was not good at all tonight. Yes, he made a crazy save but only because he was, again, out of position.

I'll just go ahead and not respond to your childish remark.


Being a coach or GM doesn't make a person smart. The fact is Mrazek lost us two games. Going with either goalie is a gamble, but I'd rather gamble on the goalie that has proven himself. Mrazek is going to be an amazing goalie in a couple years but he still has a ton to learn.

what does he have to learn lol? From what I've seen all he needs to know is if his team decides to show up they'll win if they don't, he'll have to be unreal he's fine he's outplayed Bishop, each loss in this series is on the team.

Craig Custance @CraigCustance

Babcock interrupted a question asking about a first-time goaltender playing in a Game 7 to ask - "theirs or ours are you talking about?

Is this clown for real? And yes, every single GM and coach in this league is a smarter hockey person than you.

Are you for f***en real?? Mrazek got us 2 shootouts and a 44save game ... He wasn't to blame for tonight's loss

We'd be out already if we had howard in .... And mrazek started 6 games in the series


ZERO CHANCE howard starts game 7 ... ZERO

Can't believe you would even say that garbage

Only as childish as PMs you sent in the past about Flip's successes. It's all in good fun though.

 

And in regards to Mrazek, just no. Does he have much to learn still? Absolutely. Is he losing games for us in these playoffs? Good God, Lemon, that's the most ludicrous thing I've read in these GDTs lately, to be totally honest.

Aren't you a Lightning fan now that your boy plays there?

Bad Game, but hey, seems like Mrazek was Jekyll tonight, He'll be Hyde next game and we win. The Wings just do things the hard way.  Plus its an odd number, we've won the odd numbers this series, 1, 3, and 5. For what its worth we are hanging tough with a damn good team. I don't agree with the media calling us dirty or cheaters cuz we aren't. I want to win this series to spite those people and coaches in the media. Its playoff hockey every team does what the Wings are blamed for doing. Damn look at the fricking Ducks.

Mrazek is going to be incredible, but he is not yet an NHL goalie.

Mrazek was good. The team played amateur hockey. No excuses.

Mistakes will make or break game 7, just like every other game in this series. We are plenty capable of beating Tampa, that's abundantly clear at this point. But we are also far too capable of handing them opportunities on a silver platter. If we can minimize the defensive breakdowns and terrible line changes, we'll win. Mrazek has been good even in the losses when you really break it down. We're scoring goals. But we have to stop making so many big mistakes. Tampa is too talented not to capitalize on them.

 

Make mistakes: Lightning win. Minimize mistakes: Wings win. Simple as that.

On what do you base that astute assumption?

 

And who are you rooting for in this series? It must be emotionally brutal for you.

#2601637 Tampa Bay Head Coach Jon Cooper Accuses Red Wings Of Cheating

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Yesterday, 05:53 PM

Nervous about your job Jon? 

 

Outcoaching someone is not cheating.

 

You know a team is rattled when they're crying about something the other team is doing.  The potential downside is that the refs may actual believe the crying.
